PageNumbers Object (Word)
Published: July 16, 2012
A collection of PageNumber objects that represent the page numbers in a single header or footer.
Use the PageNumbers property to return the PageNumbers collection. The following example starts page numbering at 3 for the first section in the active document.
ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary) _ .PageNumbers.StartingNumber = 3
Use the Add method to add page numbers to a header or footer. The following example adds a page number to the primary footer in the first section.
With ActiveDocument.Sections(1) .Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.Add _ PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberLeft, _ FirstPage:=False End With
To add or change page numbers in a document with multiple sections, modify the page numbers in each section or set the LinkToPrevious property to True.
Use PageNumbers(index), where index is the index number, to return a single PageNumber object. In most cases, a header or footer contains only one page number, which is index number 1. The following example centers the first page number in the primary header in the first section.
